Scopey (16274) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours near black with a thick tan head. The nose is smooth, creamy, roasted malt, milky coffee, cocoa, earth, light spice and toast. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, milk chocolate, creamy, toasty, horlicks, earth and charred toast with a dry finish. Med+ body, fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Not a whole lot of depth, but great balance and high drinkability for the abv. bhensonb (15973) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Bomber from Archer Liquors. Pours quite black with a 2-finger tan head. It has a sweetish aroma of darkly toasted malt. Medum body with creamy carbonation that bites just a bit. Flavor is toasted malt with dark fruits and some chocolate. Dark fruit aspect matches the "Baltic" descriptor. Finishes a bit burnt, slightly bitter and rather balanced by the dark fruit. It’s a really flavorful stout, and not excessively sweet. Really a lot going on in this one. Highly recommended. DSG (15432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 28, 2008

Poured clear dark brown color with medium brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy roasted chocolate malt, woody and tobacco aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration to long duration.
My expectations where met with a very good stout.

Bottle shared at Mikkeller Bar. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate, lactic and roasted. Flavour is milky chocolate, nuts, roasted. Medium bodied and smooth. An excellent milk stout. FFF have done it again with another great beer! Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Bomber from thetomG. Thanks! Pours pitch black with a fizzy medium sized brown head. Poor head retention and OK lacing. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, lightly roasted malts and a sweet note. The taste is roasted malts, a lactic note, some caramel and some toastiness. Almost a coconut-like note. Medium bodied. Nicely done. Good beer. Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective tasting on 12/10/08:Thanks to JaBier for sharing a bottle. The beer pours nearly black with dark brown around the edges. Ultra-thin dark beige head that diminishes quickly, and spotty lacing. Aroma of coffee and milk chocolate with a nice roasty undertone. Medium, creamy body with flavors of coffee and roasted malt, as well as a nice sweet chocolate presence. The finish is bittersweet chocolate with a roasted coffee aftertaste. Very good overall. crossovert (14135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
650 ml bottle, only 6.49 from Discount Liquor in Milwaukee, in a state that FFF doesn’t distribute to, yet I can only find it for 9.99 in Illinois. Quirkly label art adorns the bottle.
Pours a dark black/brown with a small caramel colored head. Leaves come nice lacing.
Smell is really sweet, almost like a chocolate stout but with less cocoa flavor. Also has the roasted malt scent. Maybe even some vanilla in there.
Taste is mega sweet and delicious. More so than the other milkstouts I have had, it isn’t as creamy as some but it really feels and tastes like a decadent dessert. Very chocolatey, sugary, and carmally, decadence. No too sweet, not too heavy either, a really well produced beer.
This is about as drinkable as it gets for a stout and it is a great beer to cap the night off with.
